Nevada 2014 ballot measures

Three statewide ballot measures are certified for the November 4, 2014 statewide ballot in Nevada.

Two of the certified measures are legislatively-referred constitutional amendments, while the third is an indirect initiated state statute. According to Article 16, Section 1 of the Nevada Constitution, an amendment proposed by the legislature must be approved by a majority in both the House and Senate in two consecutive legislative sessions. Nevada has no regular 2014 legislative session, as the legislature is only required to meet a total of 120 calendar days in two years. At least two initiated constitutional amendments were proposed for the November election ballot, but both failed to submit signatures.

Supporters of the certified indirect initiated state statute were required to collect 72,324 valid signatures by November 2012 in order to be considered by the Nevada State Legislature during the 2013 state legislative session. Since the legislature took no action by the deadline on March 15, 2013, the measure was automatically referred to the 2014 ballot.
